Penguin Pest Messing with our Morning Messages!

If you are doing anything penguin-related in January, consider incorporating this into your program!
I have done a few posts in the past about

The entire lesson as well as box labels and student worksheets are included in this pack.
Also in this pack, you will get Chit Chat Chart ideas that incorporate Pesty the Penguin. His antics will allow your students to practice letter recognition, letter sounds, sight word recognition, numeracy, and letter formation as they work together to repair the 'mess' that Pesty makes.
Here are a few examples from the pack:
Every once in awhile, Pesty comes to the classroom while we are away and messes up our Chit Chat Chart messages. Here is one example:

When Pesty has been away from the class for awhile, do an inferencing activity to guess what he has been up to. This pack includes 13 inferencing activities, complete with lists of items needed as well as student response forms.
